V70 vs Highlander vs???
As I continue to boil down my car choices, it's narrowing between the V70 2.4 and the Highlander 4cyl 2wd.
- Nearly identical MPG (mid 20s avg)
- Nearly identical passenger spacing
- Nearly identical cargo (with 3d seat folded)
Where the Highlander is starting to win for me:
Cost, I can order a loaded HL for about $4k less than the V70 Mil Sales price.
Reliability - The Toyotas just have a better record.
About the only significant option I get on the Volvo vs. the HL is the Nav system (on mil order 2.4s), and it would be more of a "luxury" car, but I'm just not sure it's worth it.
By the way, the 4cyl HL gets about identical real-world MPG as the hybrid... it just doesn't burn 7 second 0-60 times (but I can get my speed fix flying jets by myself instead of in a car with my family onboard).
C'mon Volvo enthusiasts - tell me why I should get the V70 (aside from it sort of being a family tradition to have Volvo Wagons)!
